CURATING CONTROVERSY
Saturday, March 28
6:00-8:00pm
Einstein Auditorium, Barney Building
34 Stuyvesant Street

Curators are, perhaps, the most vulnerable individuals during a controversy. Their jobs are often at stake as they are under pressure from artists who are rarely willing to negotiate the presentation of their work and from museum administrators concerned about donors, trustees, legal liabilities and public relations. The four panelists will discuss some of the case studies and best practices gained as a result of a one-day seminar for art curators immediately preceding this public program. Organized by the Arts Advocacy Project at the National Coalition Against Censorship and the Visual Arts Administration M.A. Program.
Participants:
Johanna Burton, director and curator of education and public programs at the New Museum
Laura Raicovich, director of the Queens Museum of Art
Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, artist and art lawyer
Robert Storr, artist and curator, dean of the Yale School of Art
